Posey is not in the lineup for Monday's game against the Brewers, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. As expected, Posey will get the day off after going 2-for-3 with an RBI in Sunday's loss to the Phillies. Nick Hundley will take over for him behind the dish, batting seventh.
Posey will receive Monday off when the Giants face the Brewers, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Sunday wasn't kind to Posey, as his wrist was struck in a hard tag at the plate and was hit in the back by a pitch. However, he still had a solid afternoon as he went 2-for-3 at the plate and drove in a run during the Giants' 5-2 loss to the Phillies. Although he's in full health following Sunday's game, he'll receive a well-deserved day off Monday.
Posey is not in Wednesday's lineup against the Marlins, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Posey retreats to the bench for Wednesday's getaway game in Miami following three straight starts behind the plate. Nick Hundley draws the start in his stead, and will bat sixth in the order while catching Matt Cain.
Posey is not in the lineup for Game 1 of Sunday's doubleheader against the Nationals, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Posey will open the day on the bench as the Giants are set to partake in a twin bill against the Nationals. Nick Hundley will take over behind the plate in his absence and bat fifth.
Posey had a big day at the plate Tuesday, going 2-for-3 with a home run, three RBI, a stolen base and a pair of runs scored in a 6-3 win over the Cubs. The All-Star catcher's 12th homer shouldn't surprise anyone, but his third steal over his last three games certainly stands out. Posey has never been known for his speed, and he's clearly using that well-known fact to his advantage, catching the opposition off guard on the basepaths. The 30-year-old hasn't turned into a burner all of a sudden, so fantasy owners should simply accept this small outburst of steals as a pleasant surprise alongside his consistent hitting.
